Broken record warning: it's been forever since I posted! Sheesh. You'd think I've been traveling here and there and so I haven't had time to write. Oh. Wait...I have been.
I spent time last June in Provence, France with my sister and bro-in-law, the end of June in London with my friend, Ethan, and then spent fall break in Salzburg and Munich with my friend, Beth Anne, and my colleagues, Jeff and Christine. I would go in to detail on all of these, but let me just say this: AMAZING! I had fantastic adventures in each of these locations and loved every minute of it!
So, where to now? I have no clue! I didn't travel as much during weekends off because...well, I don't know why. I just didn't. I want to remedy that this semester as this could very well be my last chance. What?! Well, I have to let the College know by this Friday what my intentions are: a new 2 year contract or return home for good. And I'm going to be honest with you in that as of today: I have NO clue what I'm going to do. I've been praying and praying and praying, but have yet to receive any specific direction from the Lord. Or perhaps He's told me what to do, but I don't like the answer and so I'm ignoring that? All I know is that I don't know. If you feel so inclined, please pray with me...
All that to say: I want to travel more this semester. I've got my spring break plans set. I'm headed to Sicily and seeing cities that I haven't seen down there. In April, I may be going to Prague with a girlfriend. In May, I plan on getting to Giverny, France to see Monet's gardens. Other than those trips, I don't know where else to go to. I have been to most of the major cities of Europe with a few exceptions of course. Currently, Ireland and Scotland occupy my number 1 and 2 spots, but I want more time in those locations than just a weekend. I don't want to travel to Istanbul alone, so...I'm stuck. And so dear readers...all 2 of you...I'm asking for your thoughts. Where should I go??? Start sending me ideas...NOW!
